SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Steve Wozniak, who started Apple in a Silicon Valley garage with Steve Jobs in 1976, says he'll miss his fellow co-founder "as much as everyone."

Wozniak says, "We've lost something we won't get back. The way I see it, though, the way people love products (that) he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world."

Wozniak spoke with The Associated Press in an interview following Jobs' death on Wednesday.

Wozniak, a high school friend of Jobs', last saw him about three months ago, shortly after Jobs emerged from a medical leave to unveil Apple's iCloud content syncing service and the latest version of its iOS mobile software. At the time, Wozniak says, Jobs looked ill and sounded weak.
